Flipping your GrillGrates over and cooking on the back side or flip side has really gained a lot of momentum in the past few years. What other grill surface is reversible and produces two totally different types of cooks? Many folks like their steaks and burgers to have that "all over" sear and don't covet grill marks. We say "To each his or her own". There is no wrong, only tasty food however you choose to use your GrillGrates.
1Start by flipping your GrillGrates over so that the flat side is facing up while on your grill. Turn your grill on. Using our Grate Scraper Tool or a paint scraper gently scrape the flat side to remove any built up crud.
2Let the thickness of the type of food you are cooking dictate how hot your grill should be. The thicker the steak the cooler the grates need to be (unless you are doing a reverse sear) so that you do not completely carbonize the exterior of your foods.
3Always, always, always oil your food before you season. Immediately before you are going to begin cooking rub the flat side of the grates with some high smoke point oil and then get the food in place. If you use too much oil you could cause a flare up so air to the side of caution.
